Freedom of expression
The PEN Català monitors human rights violations against writers, editors, translators and journalists around the world and organises campaigns in their favour. Every 15th of November it joins the International Day of the Imprisoned Writer. In order to give this cause more visibility, it gives the International Free Voice Award to any writer that has suffered or currently suffers persecution. This is an annual award and it takes place in the Balearic Islands.See objectives
